Author has written 34 stories for Sci-Fi, Love, Fantasy, Humor, Horror, General, Fantasy, Religion, Mystery, Nature, Essay, and Life.

I have had an obnoxiously boring profile for a while, and I think I should liven it up a bit. So, here it goes.

I am a half-dead zombie with mystical otherworldly powers and an interest in what the living call fine works of literary art. My favorite foods consist of small children and brains. My hobbies are killing, blood sucking, and biting people. I generally look disgusting with decaying flesh falling off of the various scars on my face.

You may be asking, "What the heck was that?" and I'll respond with this: my life really isn't that interesting. I'm a straight A student in high school and I love music, math, reading, and writing. I love writing stories, though I generally can't keep a story line straight or have realistic characters. I try though, and I'd like others to see my efforts.

Well, aside form stories, I do write a few poems. My 7th grade year was very poetry intensive, so a good majority of my poems should be in a set form.

Oh yes, another thing. I am a Christian, but a lot of my work has very... dark aspects (Jared from POH, Darkness Suite, I started a story about a fox who went around stealing people's souls). No matter how happy a story is supposed to be (POH was supposed to be a happy-go-lucky story that's sole purpose was to bring joy to your heart), it always ends up dark and depressing.

The Gregory Brother on youtube are hilarious.

Chopin's Op. 9 no. 1 Nocturne in B-flat minor is the most beautiful piece of music ever written. I learned it. Working on other random Chopin nowadays, mainly including Ballade no 4 in F minor and Etude op 10 no 3 "Tristesse." Listen to both.

Dracula was not as scary as one would expect it to be.

The movie was terrible and nothing like the book.

I have a feeling my writing would be a lot happier if I wouldn't have read Dracula (or Three Musketeers for that matter; ending was so sad).

My dad makes me watch Star Trek with him (and play the card game). However, I have to give it credit; it's grown on me.

My favorite series is Septimus Heap by Angie Sage.

Well, I am StoryStan (and if you're wondering what my real name is, I'll give you a hint: it has nothing to do with Stan), and read my writing!

And review :)

Oh yes, one more thing. Honestly, no matter how exciting a person you are, your life is not nonstop moment to moment action. Normal things happen to even the most extraordinary people. I believe that in writing, you have to capture everything. Not just the exciting bits. Also, although my love is for writing stories, I seem to be better at writing poetry.

I'm sorry for not posting anything in a really long time. Life is eventful. I will hopefully finish POH soon...

Sunset
At the end of my mission trip to Detroit, I felt a wave of melancholy as I watched the sun setting on the Detroit River. I sat there staring at the sun's reflection on the waves for a long time, contemplating why I felt this way. This poem is my reflection on my trip to Detroit, and my reflection on the nature of the setting sun.
